To pose a problem refers to the creative activity for mathematics education. The purpose of the study was to explore the eighth grade students’ problem posing ability. Three learning domains such as requiring four operations, fractions and geometry were chosen for this reason. There were two classes which were coded as class A and class B. Class A was consisted of successful students in comparison to class B in terms of mathematical acquisition. The study has been carried out by means of qualitative research. On the other hand, independent samples T test was used for obtaining statically inference. Moreover, chi-square test was used whether this students’ problem posing ability is independent of mathematics topics.
